Hello, everyone.  Wow!  I'm seeing that I'm not the only one who has this lousy "bug".  I've been doing some visiting and so many of you are mentioning that you have a cold bug.  As you have wished me to be well soon, I hope the same for you too!  Being in the same boat, I know how you must feel!

I honestly think I DO have the flu though because, since early this morning, my stomach is tied in knots; can't eat, can't drink, body achy and I have to breath through my mouth because I'm too congested to breath through my nose.  I know I should be lying down probably; but, for the life of me, I cannot not do anything!  So, I've been piddling around all day trying to finish this card and getting in some visiting-- just to give myself something to do to try to keep my mind off how awful I feel.  Besides I get cranky if I get too bored!!!

Anyway, if I don't feel better tomorrow, I will be calling my doctor to schedule an appointment.

This is my second Imagine card and, although it's not what I'd like to produce, I feel it's a heck of a lot better than my first one:

Here's a picture of the inside of my card:

For this card I used the Imagine More cartridge and the Cricut Quarter Note cartridge.

Well, that's it for now.  I'll be back when I can!

Beatriz Farquhar-Guzman said...

Take a nice hot tea and jump in your cozy bed, that will do it.

Oh how fun.. you have the Quarter Note.. I have looked everywhere for that and can't find it anywhere.. :-( Wondering where you found it??? I so love the card, love love it.. I am glad to hear you are THINKING about going to the doctor.. now to get you there.. lol. We went to see Aunt Eloise today, she didn't want me to leave, bless her heart. Well my friend, I agree with Beatriz, you need to jump into your cozy bed and get some rest.. sending you lots of hugs.

Nice card, love the music note paper. Be sure and call the doctor is you still feel bad, because if you have the flu you want to get that taken care of. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Love That Bug said...

So sorry you are still not feeling well. I had the same exact thing. It started with a fever, the body aches then the cold part. My fever lasted about 5 days in and out. I am mostly better now, but I have a nasty horse cough. UGH! I hate being sick!
I sure hope you feel better soon. Get lots of rest and drink lots of hot tea (if you can)
Many hugs to you
(PS~I like your card too)

Hi Audrey - how are you feeling ?
My son is ill as well. He keeps sneezing and is getting over a sore throat. I keep doting on him and making sure he takes meds or eats. Which does not seem to be a problem at 17 YO he eats well.
Well - just wanted to thank you for the sweet comment on my "ill colored" card. I tried to use colored crayons and take a stump to smooth it out and my lighting in my craft room is so poor - I grabbed a yellow for the skin and then went over it and then had to re-color her dress from yellow to blue then green... oh my. Anyways- hope you are doing better! - hugs Sheryl
